Some of you may wonder how to make a picture out of felt. This is a mini tutorial on the process of felt artistry. I have found that prefelt works best, It will hold the shape of the cut without "bleeding" too much into the fibre beside the cut piece. To that end, here are the three prefelt pieces that I made for this project... A "poster" of Niagara Falls, in a 1950's advertising style.
First is the waterfall itself, with streaky blues and greens. Prefelt is a piece of felt worked to the point where it is well fused, but not shrunk at all. You will want to have it join with more wool at the next stage. I lay the fibre, then wet it with cool soapy water, then roll it for about 15 minutes. Then open it and smooth it and let it dry. No need to rinse out the soap, as it will be worked further.
The third piece is the rock for the cliff that the falls is falling over. Black and grey in a streaky pattern.
